Team Member Randy Gray from Ontario, Canada just sent in these photos of his project Dan Gurney Spoiler II. The car has had some metal work done but Randy did not elaborate on that. He was too excited to actually see it in the Blue and White to provide any details. However, he did ask if there […]

What are You Working On? Randy Gray

One of the things I most enjoy is sharing the photos and information I receive from our readers about their projects.

What Have You Been Working On? Lou Whitfield

If I remember correctly, that last time we checked in with Lou and Erin Whitfield, Lou was finishing up their Dan Gurney short nose and the two of them were planning on attending the Reunion in Talladega.
